Volunteers Required for Summer League at Battersea Park – Sunday 21st August

This is a fantastic 10k with a very easy route which many of us (including me!) recorded a personal-best time! To run in the race, you do not need to enter in advance, you just need to show up with your Serpie shirt/vest to run – come to the race HQ near the Bandstand at about 09:00 for a 09:30 start of the race. However, it is helpful to us if you could let us know beforehand, so that we have an idea of numbers and communicate with everyone. Therefore, please fill in this form before the race to indicate interest. Those with children are also invited to come to the race and the children can take part in the tenderfoot event after the 10k race.


Volunteers Required!

As we are hosting this fixture, we will need about 15-20 volunteers to make the event a success – we currently only have about half a dozen and the club needs YOU! Please fill in this form if you can help. In particular:

  • There are a number of race-related roles including the following – most roles do not require qualifications:
    • 2 x Timekeepers
    • 6 x Marshals
    • 2 x Finish Funnel Stewards (guiding runners into the finish funnel)
    • 2 x Finish Place Handlers (handing out finish position numbers to runners)
    • 2 x Water Station Volunteers
    • 1 x Bag Minder


  • We will need someone as our team manager to record runners on the day – taking participants’ names and finish positions.


  • Happy to bake something?! Every hosting club has so far provided a picnic for all participants, and it’s only right that we return the favour for the other clubs! I will be coordinating the Serpie baking operations, so please get your baking trays ready! Please email me know if you are able to bake something – cookies, muffins, cakes, anything you like! – so that we have an expectation how much we are providing.


  • Not sure about baking? How about bringing some fruit?  Let me know if you wish to do so.


  • Finally, we need someone who has a car to help with a supermarket journey (for water and sundries) and picking up some bits and pieces from Seymour Centre before the race.


Volunteers will be required to be at Battersea Park from about 09:00. Apart from the race-related roles, the other roles can be combined with taking part in the race itself.

If you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact our Summer League rep Imran Ahmed.


After the race

We are planning a Serpie social event afterward the race – details to follow later.


Happy Summer Running & Volunteering!
